“I really enjoy how open and warm the environment is. Working as a Recreational Assistant puts you on the front lines every day. You come into contact with so many different people who live in your community and really learn how to connect to the human population not only as a member of the staff, but on a personal level as well. I get to witness the growth and change of my community every day.”
